Incentive Grants for Jewish Camp

Jewish camps today offer world-class athletics, arts, and specialties, such as computers, adventure, and more. To boot, they wrap it all up in a warm, values-based environment where young people hone life skills and connect with their Jewish identity.


Why We Love Jewish Summer Camp


Helping children develop greater self-confidence, indpendence, empathy, and problem-solving skills, Jewish camp is a great investment in their future. Because young people who go to Jewish camp tend to stay involved in Jewish community as adults, it is also a sound investment in a strong future for the Jewish community  and the reason the Jewish Federation is proud to partner with the One Happy Camper program to offer incentive scholarships for first-time campers to try Jewish camp.


More Camp and Summer Options

  • Need-Based Scholarships

    Camp is not a luxury, but a lifeline for struggling families who can't afford safe and nurturing childcare when school is out for summer. Need-based camp scholarships help fill the gap.

  • Special Needs Scholarships

    Scholarships can help children with special needs reap the benefits of Jewish camp, building skills and confidence, making friends, and engaging in Jewish life among a lively and warm community.

  • Teen Travel Grants

    Trips to Israel connect teens to their Jewish identity and community. Grants up to $1000 make it possible for more young people to experience and form their own close relationship with Israel.
